Resourceful Designer Blog
The Resourceful Designer Blog is your source for interesting tips, suggestions and ideas to help streamline your design business. Tips, suggestions and ideas may come in the form of software, hardware, resources and advice. Feel free to comment on the posts so that I can learn as much from you as I'm sharing.
I created Resourceful Designer to both gather and share what it takes to run a successful graphic and web design business. Through the podcast and this site, I hope to impart both my and my guests' knowledge of skills and tools required to remain competitive in today's design industry.
I entered the graphic design space in 1989 and I've never stopped learning. Over the years I've learned tips and tricks and acquired the knowledge needed to allow me to succeed in this competitive industry. In 2005 I started my own home-based graphic design business. A decision I've never regretted.
Now, I share that knowledge and experience with you via the Resourceful Designer podcast and blog. There are so many great resources online that teach us various design techniques but few that teach us what it takes to remain lucrative while employing those skills. That's why I chose to focus on the aspects of running a graphic design business. I hope you find my content valuable. If you do enjoy what I have to offer please share it with other designers.
